- So when exactly did Bin Laden have the chance to get plastic surgery?
Reposted with permission from James Edwards’ blog over at The Political Cesspool:
So Osama bin Laden is dead, huh?
I’m not at all convinced Obama is telling the truth. And how convenient that they “buried him at sea.”
So far, I ain’t buyin’ the story, folks. Osama bin Laden may have been dead for years. He may still be alive.
It’s possible that he was killed yesterday just as Obama claims.
You can believe what you want, but it’s likely that last night’s announcement was intended to shore up the public’s waning support for our insane military misadventures in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to build support for even further wars with Libya and Iran, and now we should probably add Syria to the list.
But it’s all moot.
Because Osama bin Laden won. Period.
If you accept the establishment version of 9/11, a rag tag bunch of ragheads, led by Osama bin Laden from a cave at the end of the earth, and armed with nothing more than a few pairs of box cutters, pulled off the most astonishing and effective terrorist attack in world history. In response, we destroyed American liberties with the USA PATRIOT act. We bankrupted ourselves to the tune of several trillion dollars attacking and destroying two countries who had never done anything to us, and couldn’t have been a threat to us if they wanted. We sent our economy down the toilet to finance these wars, which only caused most of the world to hate us. And now we’re on the verge of attacking Libya, and/or Syria, and a full blown all out war with Iran has never been off the agenda since 9/12/01.
And what did we get for all of our efforts? If you believe last night’s news, we got Osama bin Laden.
Compare that to what we’ve spent and lost in US lives, trillions of dollars down the drain, a bankrupt economy, the good will of the world replaced with enmity and hatred.
But hey, that’s no matter, because we got Osama!
For those of you paying attention, you will have noticed that, for the first few years after 9/11, everything was about Bin Laden: where he was, where he had been, what his plans were, how we could find him, etc. But after the Iraq war got kicked off, Bin Laden just dropped by the wayside, replaced with the much more generic Al Qaeda. This was because Bin Laden and Al Qaeda were never more than propaganda tools for the globalists to further their goals in America and abroad. The Bin Laden boogieman was needed to produce the appropriate amount of support for the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, but they could not keep him in the spotlight for too long. If he was dead, then much of the public support for the wars would end, but if he was alive, then it would be an embarrassing reminder of the most powerful government in the world’s failure to find a lone cave dweller. So they simply stopped talking about him. How convenient is it, then, that now, with public support for the foreign wars at an all-time low, Bin Laden turns up dead just in time to rally the public back to the cause? I would guess that they have had this ace in the hole for a while now, and the fact that they have played it makes me wonder what is coming next. My personal guess would be that the globalists think that the deteriorating situations in Libya or Syria need American soldiers on the ground or that the long-awaited strike on Iran is finally in the works, and this is their way of showing the public that these wars are “worth it.” Do you want the terrorists to win?!
But of course, even if you buy the U.S. government’s account of what happened on 9/11, Bin Laden and Al Qaeda did win. Americans have surrendered countless freedoms to feel safe from the “terrorists,” the U.S. government has grown by leaps and bounds both in size and authority, and we have sunk huge amounts of American blood and treasure into three illegal, unwinnable foreign wars (four, if you count Pakistan), with no end in sight and additional wars a distinct possibility. As James said, Bin Laden might be dead, but America lost the war.

Indeed, at the end of the day, all of the current celebration over Bin Laden’s alleged death is about as meaningful as this news.
